Metronomy unveiled as special guests at Green Man festival
The Devon/Brighton-based quartet, led by dance-pop genius Joseph Mount, will play an extended live set on the Mountain Stage on Saturday August 18. Joseph is an old friend of the Green Man, having put on an absolutely blinding night of dancefloor mischief when Metronomy curated Far Out After Dark in 2010.
Since then, The English Riviera – Metronomy’s incredible third album – has catapulted the band into the stratosphere: a gorgeous, unashamed pop record full of languid, sunset funk songs tailor-made for a balmy summer’s evening.
Featuring the already classic singles Everything Goes My Way and The Look, The English Riviera was undoubtedly one of the defining records of last year. We know you’ll join us in welcoming Metronomy back to Green Man 2012 with open arms – it should be a night to remember!
Green Man is set in the heart of the beautiful Black Mountains in Wales. The river Usk flows around the perimeter and Table Top and Sugar Loaf mountain’s stands impressively as the backdrop to the Mountain Stage.
